. it said, "breaking" two explosions in the white house and barack obama is injured. that was a fake report as a result of a hack attack against the a.p. twitter account. but it set off this reaction in the dow jones industrial average, as you see from the chart, a huge spike down on that news. down about 143 points at the bottom. and then bouncing right back up, all of that happening within the space of about three minutes. and by sheer coincidence, the white house briefing was set to start, and by tradition, the a.p. reporter gets the first question from the white house. and she had a chance to make a little bit of news of her own, explaining what just happened here. take a listen. >> reporter: i just want to say at the top that it appears as though a.p.'s twitter account has been hacked so anything just sent out about any incident about the white house is false and we'll be putting something out shortly to clarify that. that has happened already. >> the president is fine. i was just with him. >> just a strange, strange story, larry. it's not every day that you see the white house spokesm

service which was entitled healing our city. it ran about an hour and 15 minutes. and president obama who spoke for about 10 minutes or so in a speech that was part sermon and also intended to inspire the city. >> i'm here today on behalf of the american people with a simple message. every one of us has been touched by this attack on your beloved city. every one of us stands with you. after all it's our beloved city, too. boston may be your hometown, but we claim it, too. >> at this hour the president is still in boston meeting with volunteers and all the while that this was going on, the investigation was continuing, the video evidence that authorities have been looking at includes potentially two individuals that may either be witnesses or may have had a role in the attacks on monday. there is video of somebody places a bag at the site that may or may not be the bag that contained the bomb. nbc news also reporting that authorities are canvassing hobby stores because some fragments included wiring and batteries. often the type used in toys. so they want to see whether these things were p

to question in relation to the boston marathon bombings. all this as president obama went to that city today to help begin the healing. scott cohn has the latest from that city. scott? >> michelle, we are, indeed, about two hours away from this long-awaited news conference. we've had an official news blackout for two days now. so we should find out what the authorities have been working on the last couple of days. some actual official information about that. potentially, a picture or pictures of the people they want to talk to and what they've learned from all of those video images. and we know that there were cell phone cameras that people have turned in and all the surveillance cameras, like the one in the lord and taylor store, just across the street from the second blast. and also, at least two others that were operated by the boston athletic association at the finish line, and those could be very high-quality images, because those were high-definition cameras. so if they caught something, that could be crucial. also, there are the fragments that they've picked up of the explosive device

happened today could have happened 30 days from now. this is what the obama administration wants. they don't care about the intelligence. they made it very clear they want people to have lawyers, to have trials and if we lose intelligence in the process, they say that's regrettable but that's just the way it is. that is unacceptable to me. it should be unacceptable to anybody who cares about preventing future terrorist attacks. >> mitch epnor it has my back up. who cares about my back. all i'm saying it sounds like this is the criminal justice model not a terrorist bombing warfare model. that's something that if administration has been accused of. did they make a mistake here? >> well, i'm going to agree it is a criminal justice model and not a terrorist enemy combatant model. that's clearly true. >> why is it true? >> it's true because he was charged under a criminal complaint today. he was brought before a magistrate. they followed standard operating procedure, every appearance to a criminal complaint t. magistrate always, always informs the defendant that he has a right to a lawyer, tha

in fuel efficiency standards under the bush administration, which were increased in the obama administration. so we're producing more and we're using less. and that's why the price of fuel is down a bit. >> all right. makes a lot of sense. fred, good to have you on the program. thanks very much. >> thank you. >> we'll be cheering on your folks here as they ring the closing bell. bill? >> all right. we're coming back a little bit here. the douw was up 151 at the high of the dead, we're up 131 right now. >> apparently, bill, the bias is to the buy side here on the floor. >> good to know. >> we'll see what happens. >>> up next, a thing who knows a thing or two about terrorism. former new york city mayor rudy us what we can learn from the explosions in boston and how to navigate this. yeah, i'm married. does it matter? you'd do that for me? really? yeah, i'd like that. who are you talking to? uh, it's jake from state farm. sounds like a really good deal. jake from state farm at three in the morning. who is this? it's jake from state farm. what are you wearing, jake from state farm

administration. he could pull it off. if obama nearly tried, it could produce a million jobs in the oil and gas industry. that's not even including the ancillary small businesses or the factory jobs that we moved here from other countries to benefit from our cheaper energy costs. but here's the rub. in order to achieve energy independence within president obama's time in office, the president would have to embrace natural gas as a surface fuel, the way they do in other countries with bountiful gas reserves. he has the ability to order government automobiles, trucks to convert to natural gas. that would then foster a huge job-creating infrastructure and make the importation of oil from diesel fuel oneua all our itsntan irrelevance. ver, ithe president did that h environmental base would be furious. so instead, he says, he favors all sorts of energy. hey, that's the same thing as doing nothing. he needs to say nat g our fuel. we're going to use it to clean up our skies and also become energy independent. sound impossible? listen. i'm not talking about giving this industry one red cent. unlike the

think you get more foot traffic under obama care and my analyst has a favorable rating on the company and you take it on a stock-specific basis. >> are you excited by earnings season, jeff? >> not yet. this is the real onslaught. last week was really light on the earnings front and we'll have a better peg on that after the end of this week. >> for sure. >> jeff, nice to see you. on cnbc. >> from the markets to the growing world of etfs there is 1.5 trillion under management in the u.s. alone within the etf landscape and as etfs keep gaining ground they might make their way into your portfolio and bob pis any is here with his brand new etf portfolio tracker. bob? >> and i'm very proud of that, carl. we've spoken about exchange-traded funds and the role they might play in their portfolio and we might take this to another level and we'll show you how to use etfs to build a retirement portfolio so we brought in six independent etf experts including five financial advisers that use etfs exclusively to build three retirement portfolios that we are rolling out today. the site, retirement.cnb
. stay with us on that. >>> welcome back. president obama addressing the nation again earlier today on the boston marathon bombing. and he promised justice. >> it will take time to follow every lead and determine what happened. but we will find out. we will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice. >> scott cohn is leiv right now near the crime scene in the back bay section of boston. scott, what can you tell us? >> maria, with the next news briefing about 25 minutes away now, we can give you a little bit of news. first of all, nbc news is reporting that some fragments of the bomb or bombs are already at an fbi atf analytical center in quantico, virginia, where they ultimately hope to reconstruct both devices, or as much of them as we can. and while there are some grievous injuries here, the head of trauma at mass general says now he is much more confident this afternoon than he was this morning that there will not be further loss of life. three people, though, are dead. the final blocks of the marathon, going down boylston street are, according to people w
is the fbi looking at right now? what's most important from your standpoint? >> well, obama met with his security advisers today, and their biggest concern is that it is a foreign threat, that it's not too lone wolfs in the united states that took this under their own, just decided to do it themselves. so what the fbi will be looking at is phone records, e-mail records. they'll be looking at any communications, travel records that had to do with these guys going back and possibly training at a camp in northern africa. the most important thing is the communication records, if they've made phone calls, connecting them to other people that may have been involved in encouraging this act or training them to do this particular act, that's what the fbi's going to be looking for going forward. >> and we don't have anymore information on that right now. we know, though, that the older brother, who is dead, did leave the country for six months. he's been living in america since 2007, but left for six months, and investigators are trying to zero in on whether or not he got terrorism training. are y
. and on a at a when twitter is hacked with a fake story about president obama being hurt, a fake story -- a fake story, and an attack on the white house, a fake story, i know that apple will be a good stock to bid for when the whole market gets hit as it did for one instant on a fake story. while i'm on that topic, please remember to use stop limit orders not stop loss orders because you will end up selling your stock on the fake story at the end of the day. here's the bottom line. it's one thing to bounce because things aren't as miserable as we thought. and because the stock has a safety net. however, if you want rising earnings, rising margins and rising dividends, yes, you might as well buy pepsico. oh, boy. or mcdonald's. john scully, pepsico, weakness. they have what the market wants. and until apple unveils its omg products, it will not return to its glory days any time soon. "mad money" and its gorgeous new set will be right back. >>> coming up, sweet pickle? condiments have been catching the eye of investors since warren buffett's bid for heinz created a big win for shareholders. tonight, cra
that there had been, in fact, explosions at the white house and that barack obama was injured in those explosions. that fake and erroneous tweet went out at about 1:07 p.m. and shortly thereafter, at about 1:16 p.m., the associated press reporter at the white house had the chance to make a little news of her own. that's because the white house briefing was coincidentally scheduled at that time and the associated press traditionally gets to ask the first question. in this case, it was ap reporter julie pace who had a chance to clear up some of the confusion arou surrounding this incident. >> i want to say at the top that it appears as though ap's twitter account has been hacked, so anything that was just sent out about any incident at the white house is absolutely false and we'll be putting out something today shortly to clarify if that hasn't happened already. >> and the president is fine. i was just with him. >> and that is not something you see every day. the white house press secretary having to reassure reporters in the briefing room that the president is fine. but, clearly, here, guys, one o
today and is mourning the death of one of its police officers. we can also tell you president obama was briefed overnight. on the series of events by lisa moniker, assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism. again, going back importantly to the details, what we do know about these suspects, which we can tell you from our very own pete williams is that they are in their early 20s, they've been in the u.s. about a year, and they have some military experience. that's all we feel comfortable reporting at this point. so, again, massachusetts institute of technology classes are canceled. the mbta transit service, which serves the greater boston area, including of course a lot of major financial firms is shut down on this friday. markets, though, shrugging it off or i should say not seeing any broad fallout. we're seeing a rally shape up in u.s. futures. we're seeing rallies across global markets. sovereign debt is performing well. here is a look at the latest on the dow, the nasdaq and the s&p. hire is a look, as well, as european markets. u.s.

to speak is governor deval patrick as well as president obama who will speak at the end of the service and will bring those remarks to you live. as you know in any sort of in terms of healing it, the key is willing a will to heal. that is very much apparent here in boston. now onto the investigation, as carl said two individuals being sought by authorities on camera, videos can be waptured of these individuals around the time of the bombing, but authorities are also saying that the pictures of those individuals have not been released. so pictures are not the men that authorities are looking for. but there were multiple images that captured the explosion and the time leading up to it. that's what authorities are looking at frame by frame by frame. not just cell phone video, but surveillance video. we talked about the lord & taylor camera directly across the street from the second bombing. there were two other cameras at least that were supplied by a company called access communications. those cameras were high definition cameras. so these could be very high quality images, and we expect
as opposed to within the criminal justice system, which seems to be what the obama administration will do. after all, he is a u.s. citizen. he carried out the crime on u.s. soil. and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of legal basis to try him as enemy combatant, which is not to say there aren't going to be more calls particularly from the right to do just that. >> when in theory you have so much evidence on american soil, why tarnish the prosecution by going enemy combatant. if you have no backlash from anybody who says you didn't do it the right way. >> he stole a suspect. but clearly -- you've got to walk through the process, right? >> i was thinking this weekend, again, and i'm speculating, you read the articles. we know now he ran after his own brother. you know what the defense is going to be. i was brainwashed by my brother. i ran over him to get away. >> the older brother, basically was even asked to leave his own mosque because his anti-american views were so strong that the islamic community in cambridge was outraged. >> if they saw this happen, raise this question and raise h
